Chandigarh: Haryana Congress Chief Ashok Tanwar said the party will soon take a decision on whether to vote or abstain in the June 11 polls for two Rajya Sabha seats from the state as Congress has not fielded any candidate and two Independent candidates are in fray for the second seat. INLD-supported lawyer RK Anand has been pitted against ruling BJP-backed media baron Subhash Chandra for the seat.
While Union Minister Birender Singh is likely to have a comfortable re-entry to Rajya Sabha, a keen contest is on the cards between Chandra and Anand when polls for the two seats to the Upper House of Parliament from Haryana are held on June 11. Tanwar said though both the candidates were Independents, they were supported by rival political parties. “We have accordingly given our feedback to our party’s senior leadership.
Our MLAs have also given their feedback. Whatever we decide to do, it will be a collective decision,” he said over phone, adding that the decision will be taken over the next few days.
